right now in a new round of senate meetings for u.n. susan rice. she is going back after yesterday, it didn't go so well, she is going back. she will answer questions about the white house response to the consulate attack in benge, libya on 9/11 of this year. many political observers think she is trying to win supporters for a possible nomination of secretary of state. she would have to be confirmed in the senate. senator bob corker earlier said miss rice's statements may prove she is too political. the meeting between susan collins, she expressed concerns too. she is not known as a republican fire brand but she expressed concerns. these meetings come a day after three top republicans said they were more concerned about libya now after meeting with rice than ever before. here is senator collins a short time ago. >> i asked ambassador rice why she did not qualify her comments more, in light of this contradictory reporting from the president of the country. her answer was that she relied on our intelligence analysis. i don't understand why she would not have at least qualified her re

wants upmake sure nobody is beating ?p on his u.n. ambassador? >> this is the problem. bain, we should probably go back to the dictionary. she's not a nominee. dictiona she's a nominee kind of in waiting. this is the problem the president can't defend her as a nominee for a job he hasn't hasn't nominated her for. this is kind of a loose shirttail out there. she's going around the hill, talking to senators. meetings aren't going well. in n part because senators, if nothing else, are reserving their leverage for if she actually does become the t onnee, they'll have a process, hearings. they don't want to prejudge that process. pr pro process hasn't begun. so the president has to say these limited things. when he says only a limited thing about her success at the u.n., he is not defending her on t theuestion that's before him. i the white house is in a tricky spot here. of course, then hanging overall of this is republicans anger hey are note still not getting the questions answered on enghazi and feel that the onesrs they're getting are as 's whatal as the original ones in the heard. you
people's daily" ran a 55-page photo spread on its website in tribute to kim jong-un citing a report by the onion. apparently it was lost on them that the onion is satire. the chinese paper went on to call kim a devastatingly handsome round-faced heart throb. as our politicians wrangle over tax increases, outrage in france over a proposed 160% tax hike on beer. brewers and customers say it's not fair because the tax is only being leveed on beer, not on other alcoholic drinks like wine. the government says this is a public health issue because more people abuse beer than abuse wine. opponents say it's just that wine makers have more political clout. >>> and cyber sales soaring. cnbc'smandy drury is here with what's moving your money. final numbers aren't in yet, but the early numbers show a pretty great cyber monday, mandy. >> many sites showed really big sales despite the busy online shopping sales leading up to cyber monday. here are the numbers we've got so far. online sales at the top retailers were up by just over 28% from the same time last year. and the other good thing here, c
former u.n. ambassador john bolton are frothing at the mustache to politicize the scandal. oh goodness sakes. >> i think we need to look at eric holder in the late summer and ask what did he do with the information that he had about the potential compromise of the security of the c.i.a. director. >> jennifer: okay. so let's get beyond the tabloid headlines to some of the real issues at stake for the u.s. military and its mission in afghanistan. for that side of the story we're going to washington, d.c. and phillip ewing phillip has been defense editor at politico. welcome inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: you bet. what is the latest revelation about general allen who is in charge of troops in afghanistan what does it mean for the war effort there? >> well, it means very little for the day-to-day reality of soldiers fighting in afghanistan. now they're going to carry out the president's planned withdrawal over the next two years and eventually the goal is to hand responsibility for the w
, and they say what happened? and the talking points come forward. the diplomats don't know in the u.n. exactly what happened on the ground in benghazi. they trust the intelligence community and others in the government to give them the talking points and then they give those talking points feeling that they are giving the truth to the american people. >> so what it comes down to, can we come to the conclusion that the republicans department like the talking points and they didn't think there was enough information in them, so now they are saying tlg a coverup? >> i think it's more serious than that. i think they don't like susan rice so they have fabricated some attacks to try to keep her from, as they think is a possibility, being nominated to be the replacement for secretary of state hillary clinton so they are starting their attack early. this very idea that one single senator, this used to gall me at the state department, it galled me at the defense department too. that one single senator can exercise his will and stop the appointment of a president's secretary or assistant secretary is no
are not happy following the session with u.n. ambassador susan rice. she is criticized for comments after the attack blaming a spontaneous demonstration on an anti-muslim video. vice believed to be line for nomination to secretary of state. president obama taking a pitch for deficit reduction package to the public. meantime, negotiations with the congressional republicans over a plan to back away from the fiscal cliff made little progress so far. the u.s. wants to avoid becoming another greece. we will look at the latest deal giving athens another envision of bail-out money. "special report" from washington at 6:00 eastern. a lot to tack. in now back to any colleagu my s with "the five." ♪ ♪ >> andrea: are you feeling lucky? the largest jackpot in powerball history. $500 million is up for grabs. numbers are drawn tomorrow. what would you do with all that dough? i went out and i asked some folks. >> you just bought power ball tickets. what would you do with half a billion dollars if you won? >> if i won, i pay the mortgage. >> take a trip to paris. >> take care of the family. take care
fearlessly stood up to the drug cartels found murdered. >>> and face-to-face behind closed doors today, u.n. ambassador susan rice takes on one of her sharpest critics, senator john mccain, over her actions after the benghazi attack. good morning and welcome to "early start," i'm deborah feyerick in for john berman. >> really nice to have you. >> i'm so glad to be here. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. first, congress back to work, and back to bickering. in just under 35 days, america hits the fiscal cliff. that triggers severe spending cuts and tax hikes. several top republicans are now defying party politics and signaling a willingness to consider increasing tax revenues to get a budget deal done. but when the lame duck senate got back in session yesterday it sure sounded like the same old broken record. >> the senate has spoken. president obama has spoken. he's promising he will not sign any bill that mortgages our future to pay for handouts to the wealthiest 2% of americans. i only hope house republicans have been listening. >> we've been responsible, even as we've r
are talking about is who is going to replace hillary clinton. the two names who have voted is u.n. ambassador susan rice and john kerry. i have no problem with susan rice. i think she's fantastic and unfortunate how she's been treated recently. i tell you, john kerry during this campaign has been fantastic in his debate prep with the president. i thought his speech as the dp nc was brilliant, and i think he would be a terrific diplomat. there's concerns that if he was nominated then the senate -- his senate seat would be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into the senate. i don't think that would be the worst thing in the world for the president, especially since we picked up seats this time around. scott brown, as a republican who may actually across the aisle, could actually serve as a useful political tool for the president. that will be interesting to watch. the other one, of course, is treasury secretary time geithner leaving. one of the outside names that's been floated is cheryl sandberg, coo of facebook. she's the first one and she's had a terrific choice. another
deal off the ground? one decision facing the president in the next week, will u.n. ambassador susan rice be his nominee to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state or will it be john kerry? they are the two contenders in the spotlight as it is intensified by republicans. a new wave of protests in cairo as egypt's president expands his power on the heels of helping to broker a ceasefire between israel and hamas. >>> new egyptian leader, same old story for the u.s. relationship? good morning from washington. it's monday, november 26, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. welcome back from the long break. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. congressional leaders return to washington this week and with just 36 days left to avert the so-called fiscal cliff becoming more apparent that senate republicans want a deal and they would like one pretty quick. but while there may be a bi-p t bipartisan consensus to raise taxes on the wealthy, the sides are still far apart on where the revenue will come from. staff level negotiations are a little bit more than stal
't need pithy sayings to keep my heart ray up. >> good morning everybody. u.n. ambassador susan rice is meeting with senators john mccain lindsey graham and kelly iop. they have been critical of her remarks in the aftermath of benghazi. she described that as a spontaneous attack based on the in tell she had from the intelligence community. there could be some substance to the plan that president obama plans to nominate her for secretary of state. she will meet with other lawmakers later this week. president obama has been unwaiving in his support of her calling republican attacks on her outrageous. >> according to official announcement, the president of mexico and the president plan to talk about economic development and bored concerns. while there is no second sit down scheduled for the president and congressional leaders he did speak to john boehner and harry reid over the weekend about avoiding the fiscal cliff. the president will meet with small business owners today. tomorrow he meets with middle class americans who would be affected by tax hikes and more business leaders. frida
of some year. >> bill: but why? what's un-american about raising taxes? >> look, no one likes -- the same way that no one likes spending cuts and don't forget the complaints about the -- if you're going to complain about the deficit or be worried about it, you can't say i'm worried about the deficit but don't do this. >> bill: right. >> i don't want to pay anymore which i hear a lot. i don't want to pay anymore either but i also would like to get us out -- >> bill: i don't want to pay anymore but i'm glad to pay my fair share and i do. >> that's the way i feel when i do my tax returns every year. this is a pain but i'm happy to do it and i actually think i get a lot of value for what i pay. >> bill: they say we're doing this in the legacy of ronald reagan. bull you know what. ronald reagan raised taxes five times. >> reagan would have no place in the current republican party given some of the things they did. grover norquist holds him up as an icon. grover is in a completely different place than he is on t
and the president did it in front of the u.n. the fact of the matter is they did change the talking points, video ya his own speech after this horrific murder of our four americans. >> why would the fact it was a terrorist attack be redacted? why would that be classified information when it was immediately apparent that it was? >> i don't know. i wish i didn't have to say that because there was an eyewitness account the 24 hours that said there was an organizationer organized jihadist in the crowd. i learned when i was working in intelligence and the navy's anti-terrorism unit rarely do you find a one-armed intelligence officer. they are always saying on whaund but on the other hand and as the paper left the cia, that general petraeus said or allegedly now in a classified hearing that there were organized terrorists involved in the attack and why it was changed, it is too easy to leap to where it was changed in the white house to maybe there were other types of information that maybe had good reason why it was changed and that's why you have an investigation before you leap to an asrgs it was done f
mccain is softening his attacks on u.n. ambassador susan rice after vowing to block her potential nomination as secretary of state. republicans claim ambassador rice deliberately misled the country in the aftermath of the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. but rice says that she's not to blame, arguing she relied on the talking points from the intelligence community. although mccain had threatened a senate filibuster earlier this month, he's now open to meeting directly with miss rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind about it? >> sure. she can -- i give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took. and i'll be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> she could conceivably get your vote for secretary of state? >> i think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position. >> the white house says no decisions have been made as far as cabinet selections for the president's second term. and john heilemann, part of what you wrote about th
'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. and, you know, we are after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi, and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants. we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, and we've got a full blown investigation. and all the information will be be scorched to congress. i don't think there's any debate in this country that when you're four americans killed, that's a problem. we've got to get to the bottom of it. there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't be any debate from me on that. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they think she is an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person
recently reread president obama's speech to the u.n. where there is no question he is saying the video did it. all of that was false. they all had reason to know it was false. clapper is just a clown. i mean, he does this all the time. and the idea that james clapper can take responsibility for making the changes, why isn't president obama furious at him? why doesn't president obama fire him today if the president really believed that clapper made a huge mistake? >> gretchen: that's a loaded question because as director of national intelligence to say one thing and then say another, especially when it has to do with al-qaeda, are they throwing him under the bus? >> look, i think he put himself under the bus by probably giving congress in those private briefings, a false answer. he said, we didn't make the changes. he said that to members of congress, presumably he was under oath, and then publicly says, oh, wait, we did make thet perjury. that's all that is. that is not ultimately taking responsibility. look, i think this does rest with two people. susan rice, who made those statements rep
news. >> when you have four people dead, including the first u.n. ambas -- u.s. ambassador in more than 30 years, how do you call that hype? >> how many security contractors died in iraq? do you know? >> i don't. >> no. nobody does because nobody cared. we know that several hundred died but there was never an official count done of security contractors in iraq. so when i see this focus on what was essentially a small fire fight, i think number one -- i've covered a lot of fire fights, it is impossible to figure out what happens in them sometimes and second, i think that the emphasis on benghazi has been political partly because fox was operating as a wing of the republican party. >> all right, thank you. >> you're welcome. >> bill: let's play it again. he says you're welcome. >> never ask a question you don't know the answer to. >> bill: you're welcome. get outta here! cut his mic. apparently he reported that the producer told him after the interview -- after they pulled the plug, the producer said you
